Published on in Saint-Tropez
During the end-of-year celebrations, you can discover another facet of our charming town. Provençal traditions, decorations and illuminations, gourmet markets… Here, we have all the necessary ingredients for a magical Christmas. The Bastide de Saint-Tropez, like a large family home where everyone gathers for the holidays, opens its doors wide to you!
A Provencal Christmas
Christmas in Provence offers an opportunity to reconnect with traditions. Don’t miss a visit to the Chapelle de la Miséricorde. Each year, passionate volunteers set up traditional Provençal nativity scenes populated by santons, the small hand-painted terracotta nativity scene figurines produced in south-eastern France. From forgotten trades and traditional costumes to colourful characters, every detail is meticulously studied and recreated to bring these dioramas to life. Children will also be thrilled to meet Father Christmas at the Place Gramont.
Saint-Tropez during the Christmas holiday season
The Christmas holiday season traditionally begins with the big switch-on of the Yuletide illuminations. Come and discover the heart of Saint-Tropez enhanced and made even more enchanting by magnificent lights.
